Check out I2G’s exclusive interview with Shawty.

I2G is here with Shawty, how’s it going?

GOOD

Tell me a little bit about how you got your start in music and who are some of your musical influences.

AT AN EARLY AGE I WAS EXPOSED TO MUSIC GREATS SUCH A JAMES BROWN, PRINCE AND MICHAEL JACKSON. MY UNCLE WAS A PROMOTER ALONG THE CHITTERLING CIRCUIT AND I HAD A CHANCE TO MEET A LOT OF STARS. AFTER BEING GIVEN A DRUM SET AS A PRESENT I TOOK A GREAT LIKING TO PLAYING THE DRUMS AND SHEILA E BECAME MY GREATEST INFLUENCE MUSICALLY AS A DRUMMER. MUCH LIKE SHEILA I STARTED OUT IN THE CHURCH AND EVENTUALLY INCREASED MY TALENTS TO BECOME A SONG WRITER, PRODUCER, RECORD LABEL OWNER, PUBLISHER AND PERFORMER.

Do you have a upcoming Mixtape or album set to drop?

I AM CURRENTLY IN THE PROCESS OF RECORDING A THREE DISK ALBUM SET WITH A DVD ATTACHMENT! SO BE LOOKING FOR THAT PROJECT TO HIT THE STREETS SOON! THE NAME OF THE THREE ALBUMS ARE SHAWTY, THA MINISTA AND THE RHAMA DON. THE DVD IS TO BE ENTITLED AS, “A HIGHTYME STORY.”

Do you have any more upcoming videos?

WE ARE CURRENTLY WORKING ON THE SKETCHES FOR THE VIDEO FOR SHAWTY SHAWTY. MY FAN BASE HASN’T HAD AN OPPORTUNITY TO SEE THE FACE BEHIND THE VOICE THAT THEY CAN HEAR AND SOMETIMES THAT’S THE THING THAT CATCHES YOUR AUDIENCE THE BEST. I CAN ONLY REVEAL A LITTLE AT A TIME BECAUSE THERE ARE A LOT OF PEOPLE IN THE INDUSTRY THAT HAVE BEEN HOLDING THIS PROJECT UP BY BITING SONGS, STEALING NAMES AND STEALING CONCEPTS.

What are your current thoughts on the music industry?

TO ME, THE INDUSTRY RIGHT NOW HAS TAKEN A DOWNFALL BECAUSE THERE ARE TOO MANY PEOPLE THINKING THAT IT IS ACCEPTABLE TO BE SATURATING THE MARKET WITH BAD MATERIAL THAT DOESN’T CROSS OVER TO ALL AUDIENCES. WHEN I WAS COMING UP PEOPLE MADE SONGS WITH A MEANING AND A MESSAGE. A LOT OF WHAT I CAN HERE ON THE RADIO NOW IS A REPETITIVE SPEECH WITH NO MEANING. PEOPLE USED TO KNOW WHO THEY WERE LISTENING TO ON THE RADIO. NOW THERE ARE TO MANY NO HIT WONDERS WITH THEIR CHEST STUCK OUT, NEVER REALIZING THE FACT THAT THEY DON’T KNOW WHAT IT IS TO BE IN THE CALIBER OR STATUS AS ARTIST SUCH AS JAMES BROWN, PRINCE, MICHAEL JACKSON, JANET JACKSON, LENNY KRAVITZ AND MAXWELL. THESE ARTIST SELL MILLIONS AND I COULD SIT DOWN WITH MY GOD DAUGHTER EVEN AND LISTEN TO THE LYRICS. WHAT THE INDUSTRY HAS TO OFFER ISN’T SOMETHING THAT I COULD SIT DOWN WITH MY DAUGHTER AND LISTEN TO.

What is currently playing on your playlist musically?

RIGHT NOW I’M LISTENING TO THE NO LIMIT BOYS, FUTURE AND GUCCI MANE. I’M ALSO LISTENING TO THE NEW JANET JACKSON,”NO SLEEP!”

Do you have any shows or tour dates?

WHEN I MAKE IT TO THE STAGE I WANT TO PUT TOGETHER A SHOW THAT CAN CAPTURE ALL AUDIENCES. I WANT TO BE ABLE TO CHANGE LIVES WITH WHAT I PUT ON THE STAGE AND I WANT FOR ALL PEOPLE TO BE ABLE TO ENJOY AND GET SOMETHING OUT OF WHAT I’M PUTTING TOGETHER! MY AUDIENCE KNOWS ME FOR THE WAY THAT I’VE BEEN PUBLICIZED IN THE STREETS BUT WHEN THEY SEE THIS SHOW, THEY’LL BE ABLE TO SEE ME FOR THE MAN THAT GOD HAS ENABLED ME TO BECOME.
